Transcontinental railway group, Canadian Pacific, has added to its talent roster with the naming of Brooke Henderson as ambassador.
Canadian Pacific has appointed three-time LPGA winner and the world’s eighth-ranked player, Brooke Henderson, as its newest ambassador for the CP Women’s Open. Joining Lori Kane, she is set to represent the railway giant over the course of its partnership with Golf Canada as official title sponsor.
Born in Ontario’s Smiths Falls, the athlete won the 2015 Cambia Portland Classic as a Monday qualifier, becoming the first Canuck to win on tour since Kane’s steal fourteen years prior. LPGA commissioner, Mike Whan, has since granted her membership on the tour, a unique allowance considering her age.
Marked the beginning of her relationship with the brand, Henderson is also a graduate of Golf Canada’s National Amateur and Young Pro squads supported by Canadian Pacific. With her KPMG Women’s PGA Championship win in 2016, she became the first Canadian to capture an LPGA major championship.
She represented Canada at the Rio Olympic Summer Games. “It is an honour to have Brooke on board. She’s the perfect ambassador as we continue to grow the game of golf, advocate for healthy living via CP Has Heart, and build on our heritage,” said Keith Creel, President and CEO of Canadian Pacific.
